So long, farewell. La la la la la la

past future

And suddenly I am singing in the hills of Austria.


In all seriousness I am now here to say my goodbyes (if anyone is even still following this blog). I think it is pretty clear that I don’t intend on posting here anymore and WordPress just sent me an invoice to renew my domain and I was all like “why the hell would I be paying that” and turned off the auto renew function.

So in around a month they will steal back my domain name and I’m assuming this blog will be no more.

It’s been fun kids. I’ve loved meeting you all and sharing your stories. Thank you SO much for reading mine. But now it’s time to take mine away and settle for boring my neighbour with them.

I will probably start blogging again in the future but at a different place where the blog reflects where I am at with my life now. It just doesn’t seem to fit in this house anymore. I need a new house but the market isn’t working for me right now. It is a task for future me, I think.

Thanks for always keeping it real with me peeps. Β Wishing you all the reward of a new hello, right when you need it.

  1. I’ve been waiting for you to reappear, but now you’re disappearing again!! I am sad to see you go. I loved your posts – refreshing, honest and funny!! Are you working on something else or just having a break? Best of luck with everything. You’ve been fab xx

    • Oh man you guys are making me all regretful about my decision. You have such nice things to say about my writing. Thank you! I have actually been so busy working it has been crazy. The irony is that I am shutting a lot of my work stuff down to de-stress my life (have been battling secondary infertility for quite some time now) which means I probably do have time to post again, however I don’t seem to have the inclination anymore. I’m sure it will come back one day. Thank you so much for following my blog and stopping by to say goodbye. I will stop by your blog from time to time and say hello xx

    • Thank you. I can’t believe I have missed all the updates and joy of holding your little bubba in your arms after your long road. I will have to go and have a squiz before I shut down completely. Thank you so much for following my blog while I was here. πŸ™‚ x

  2. Yeah, I wish you weren’t going! I’ve enjoyed your posts and would love to see you come back to this space some day if it feels right for you

    • Thank you so much! I am stoked that you even remember posts it has been so long! I will write again I’m sure. I just have to find the place where inspiration sits. I hope you and little Evie keep on having fun together. x

  3. This sucks. Thank you so much for supporting my blog when it was in its bumbling infancy. Thank you so much for your hilarious and thought-provoking posts. And thank you in advance for your future incarnation of Mummy Flying Solo. *fingers crossed*

    • Honey I supported your blog because you are hilarious and a fabulous writer so thank YOU for entertaining me. You know I still sniff around your blog and facey page so you will be sure to get a message again when I am writing for realsies. Now you have hit the big time you will have to intro me to all your blogging besties πŸ˜‰ xx

  4. Madam, it has been a pleasure following your blog. Best of luck with whatever you’re planning to tackle next up. Just remember to keep up your running and keep away from the magpies! So long, madam.

    • Oh JD you were one of my few male followers. Thank you! I have been somewhat distracted from running of late with a few troubles trying to create new life and all but I have decided that once this stage has passed I will be training for a half and then if that goes well a full marathon. Thank you for the inspiration!

  5. I was wondering if you would go back to the blog indeed, since I noticed you didn’t post anymore. But it was really nice reading in that stage of your life. I assume you have stored your content somewhere? Great memories! Speak to you soon Rachael!

  6. I am super grateful for this blog, because without it, you wouldn’t have come into my life. Moving on is exactly the right step, at the exact time you make that decision. I will follow you to the ends of the blogging-earth, so I hope you grace us all with something in the future. Much love and hugs MFS xxxx

  7. I was just thinking about your blog the other day, wondering where all your adventures were taking you… In particular, the one you wrote about bonding with baby was really touching and something a lot of parents I’ve spoken to don’t hear enough about. Thank you for being so brave to share, it’s something so many people really appreciate (and I’m not even a mum!) I know you’ll only do more excellent things when the time is right, so keep it up however it comes πŸ™‚

  8. I’ve been wondering about you! Please do let us know once you have decided to blog again! All the best! Hugs and kisses to the little one! xoxo
